Blog Post created by kristinbigda Employee on Jun 2, 2017

Are you heading to Boston this weekend (or maybe you are already here...welcome!) for the annual NFPA Conference & Expo?  We are excited to be hosting the conference in NFPA’s backyard and home state.  There will be A LOT going on at the conference including informative educational sessions and the Association Technical Meeting where the NFPA membership will vote on certified amending motions presented on NFPA 1.  I have put together a list of everything you won’t want to miss if you are looking for information about, or in some way related to, content in NFPA 1, Fire Code or for inspectors and fire code officials.

The NFPA Technical Meeting will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. Under the NFPA rules, only Certified Amending Motions (with valid sign-in) and proper follow-up motions will be presented.  There will be 13 NFPA codes and standards presented at this year's technical meeting.  NFPA 1 will be the last document to be addressed on Wednesday.  You can view the meeting agenda and the certified amending motions for NFPA 1 here. Successful motions presented to NFPA 1 will be then voted on by the Technical Committee and may result in final changes to the Code before publication of the 2018 edition this fall.


Enjoy your time at what's sure to be a fantastic Conference!


Happy Friday, stay safe!
